Wednesday wanderings

I've done a touch of tatting.

This is a variation on Jane's Winsome Drop earrings, done with about doubled amount of gold luster cranberry Miyuki rocaille beads size 15/0, using gold DMC metallic thread. The large center bead came from the loot I got from Fox.   I tatted this directly to my gold findings instead of using a metal loop. These earrings were worn today at work - I rather like them.

The boy kitties are hanging out together.  The bad kitten tends to mirror what Cisco is doing.  Believe it or not, the kitten is almost asleep here.  Limber fella, isn't he?

And some random fun.....

You must go here and look at the recipe for this decadently yummy chocolate cake or pie or whatever. it is  I think I would swallow my tongue with joy if I ate it.  I would brazenly lick the plate.  I probably wouldn't sleep for three days either, from all the chocolate.

And you simply must watch this.  What I like the best about this video is that he's doing this to amuse his 3 year old daughter.

I do NOT recommend making this:

Making it is blogged here.  The blogger found it as revolting as appears.  This also looks vile.  Hmm.  Maybe I could make it for my MIL.  Oops - that was vicious.

I will not buy this.  Eww.

I just don't know what to say.

Okay readers, have you come across anything weird or fun while trolling the web?


  1. The earrings are unbelievable. I love them. That fudge pie? looks like the one my mom used to make. I made it a few times. Yummy, yummy. Your cats are so cute. I wish I could stretch out like that. The bacon and eggs pancakes are so fun. What a great dad. The other video, let's just say, phew!!!!

  2. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [15 Jul 12:00pm GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  3. You tatted EARRINGS?
    Our cat is ignoring us, staying out all night long.
    And now? I crave fudge.

  4. Saw the earrings, admired them and thought...hmmm I have some beads just like that...

    Ah ha! I shall have to try earrings. The beads are such an odd shape I am never sure what to do with them. I like what you did.
    Fox : )

  5. LOL! Some days you are just pure entertainment!
